LOTV FULL SET OF STAMPS blog candy low res

So now to the challenge.  As well as the fabulous candy that’s up for grabs on the challenge blog, we are also giving away 2 Lili of the Valley stamps of your choice to the winner.  We are changing the rules, from now on only cards that have a Lili of the Valley image will qualify to be in the draw for the prize.

I’ve provided the sketch this week. A nice and easy one with plenty of room for embellies overkill rofl.


Now I don’t know the name of this little cutie preening in front of the mirror but she is just the cutest all dressed up in her mammy’s clothes.  Check out those shoes lol.


Gone with my favourite colour combo again and have used the gorgeous Nitwit digi papers.  I can’t remember where I got the ribbon off – could it have been Crafts U Love?  I’ve machine stitched around the edges (the thread kept on snapping and the machine nearly went out of the window till I figured out a certain little grandson had fiddled with the tension wheel!!!)


The embellishments are all from Wild Orchid Crafts – I used the green Crystal Drops, 15mm roses, 35mm wild rose, and 6mm closed rosebuds.  The sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley and is just perfect for this stamp.  I’ve had lots of emails about the green curlicues in the flower arrangements – all I do is twist the waste stems from the flowers around a pokey tool, easy peasy lol.

A close up of this little cutie that I have coloured with distress inks and Twinkling H2O’s.


Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the DT’s cards with all the new stamps, they are fabulous!

I have some more candy to post that the lovely Moira has sent me, as soon as I get a chance I will get it photographed and posted up.  Thanks again for your generosity Moira xx
